Film director Collatos arrested for hoisting a flag showing Greece under German occupation

Greek police detained film director Dimitris Collatos on Wednesday afternoon with charges of ‘insulting national symbols’. Collatos had hoisted a Greek flag on his balcony. The flag was featuring a German army boot over Greece in a lake of blood. A swastika was also to be seen.

According to neighbors, Collatos had hoisted the flag at noon and left his home, located in Kolonaki district of Athens, just ten meters away from the German embassy.

Speaking from the police station to news portal newsit.gr, Collatos said that some embassy guard had informed the police implying that the denouncement came from the Germany embassy.

When police and the prosecutor went to his home, Collatos returned but refused to take down the flag. The Greek police did.

According to latest information, he is currently at the police station of Syntagma and will be soon released. On Thursday he has to appear before the prosecutor.
